Shore fishing in March from Playa Encanto.

The ones with the spots are Spanish Macks but either way good eating if you eat them right away. The meat doesn't hold very well but excellent for ceviche. Awesome report! Keep em coming!!!

We caught a bunch of these bonefish... these are bonefish, right? I also fished the point of the estuary from the Playa Encanto side, one of the other guys caught a flounder and supposedly someone caught a sea trout the previous day. They caught the flounder with a kastmaster.

Those are mullet. And the sea trout was probably a corvina.
Negative sir. OP is correct. That is a BONER and they are fairly common in the spring time. Also known as the poor man's Tarpon and they are supposed to be really fun on the fly rod.

Thanks for correcting me on that. Looks like eastern pacific bonefish maybe? I’ve caught them on the fly and they are a blast. I’ve had great success catching them from shore just after sunset with a black clouser minnow.
